AN 18TH CENTURY COUNTRY RETREAT AWAY FROM THE HUSTLE AND BUSTLE OF OLD VALLETTA
With its breathtaking interior and manicured Italianate gardens, 18th century Palazzo Parisio is one of Malta's most spectacular private houses.
Palazzo Parisio is one of Malta's most beautiful and desirable destinations for luxury and style. Under the direction of Baroness Ramsay Scicluna and her daughter, Justine, it is famous not only for its stunning gardens and beautiful rooms but for the innovation, unique delivery and highly professional standards that make the Palazzo a world class destination in Malta and beyond. From fine dining, perfectly served afternoon tea to bespoke events, the Palazzo is an idyllic location.
THE CULTURE COLLECTION IN COLLABORATION WITH Teatru Salesjan
Palazzo Parisio is proud to be supporting Teatru Salesjan throughout the month of April. Teatru Salesjan has become a hallmark for giving communities ownership over their own work, and introducing innovative ways to bring the arts closer to the people.
In the first of these, the Jose Carlos Gòmez Quartet performs the premiere of their new show, Gold & Light, an evocative evening of Spanish music and tapas, glowing with the exotic aura of the Iberian landscape.
This is followed by Burnand and Sullivan’s scintillating operetta Cox & Box, a hilarious and deliciously absurd Victorian farce that lampoons the double-dealing and fraud that comes with renting an apartment in a big city. Performed by an international cast of singers and actors, Cox & Box is operatic farce at its funniest.
The Palazzo programme ends with the Maltese premiere of Tama Matheson’s acclaimed music-drama, Johann Sebastian - The Life and Passions of JS Bach - a dramatic retelling of the extraordinary life of the world’s greatest musician. Interlaced throughout with Bach’s incomparable music, Johann Sebastian is a performance half-concert, half-drama, set in the dazzlingly opulent ballroom of the Palazzo Parisio.

Back in the 1700's, Palazzo Parisio started life as a hunting lodge, but the ambition and vision of the Parisio and Scicluna families saw its evolution into the exquisite Palazzo of today, complete with sumptuous mirrored gilded salons, lofty halls lined with Maltese and Italian art and frescoes, fine dining rooms and a dramatic marble staircase.
Blooms festoon manicured shrubs and hedges, while gnarled, twisted olive trees, citrus, cascading bougainvillea, towering palms and a canopy of deciduous leaves add shade to the limestone. The Italianate walled gardens, offer a kaleidoscope of colour and scent all year round from every corner of the world. Charming cobble pathways are flanked by greenery and link the ornate iron gates to the 18th century Orangery and grotto.
